Authorities in a relatively peaceful city across the state line are investigating three homicides that have occurred there in just the span of a week. 
WEIS News Radio reports that 45-year-old Willie Brown was shot to death outside his Gadsden home Tuesday night by what authorities believe was an AK-47. Police say the assailant likely lay in wait for Brown, who was struck by multiple rounds.
Eerily enough, just the Saturday before, two men----53-year-old Billy Baker and 35-year-old Jobari Player---were gunned down on the street in Gadsden by what authorities again believe was an AK-47. 
Both cases are under investigation by Gadsden Police.
